1. Another brave insider willing to speak the truth about Govt spying on Americans

Yet I'll watch thread after thread started about Snowden being a traitor for trying to help expose this.

It truly makes me sad.....

2. I agree

And the government will prosecute to the fullest to discourage anyone else.

3. Defenders of this program throw out the red herring argument

"why aren't you as concerned about corporations collecting data on you", which presupposes 1. that we AREN'T concerned, 2. Ignores the fact that we have a Fourth Amendment to prevent government from doing so, which doesn't apply to corporations.

and when we answer "Corporations can't put me in prison" they just stare back blankly and proceed to call for crushing "leakers" with massive governmental power.
